‘Random guy’ in Josh Duggar’s alleged OkCupid profile considering legal action

Published

on

The “random guy” whose image the embattled Josh Duggar used on his alleged OkCupid account is “considering his legal options” and says Duggar’s use of his photo is causing him problems.

On Wednesday, Gawker revealed that Duggar, an anti-LGBT activist and former director of the Family Research Council had two paid accounts with Ashley Madison, a website dedicated to helping people cheat on their spouses.

Twitter users googled his Ashley Madison handle, “[email protected],” and found an OkCupid profile using the same email address.

But the profile picture on the dating website is not of Duggar. It’s reportedly Matthew McCarthy, a Hollywood-based DJ and bartender. McCarthy’s image is the third one pulled up on Google with the search term “random guy.”

McCarthy told celebrity news website TMZ that it’s his photo that his involuntary involvement with the Duggar mess has cost him personally. He has already lost a gig as a result and considers it a “defamation of character.”

The OkCupid account has since been deleted, Gawker reports.

Duggar and his family were featured in the TLC reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting. The Duggars have actively campaigned against same-sex marriage and LGBT rights. Last year, matriarch Michelle Duggar’s voice in robocalls warned Fayetteville, Arkansas residents that an ordinance assuring civil rights be extended to transgender people would put children at risk for molestation, the Washington Post reports.

In May, In Touch Weekly revealed that it was Duggar who molested children — five young girls, including his own sisters.

On Thursday, Duggar released a statement in which he admitted he had been “the biggest hypocrite.”

“The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings,” he wrote. “As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
